1972 route planning map

This new map has been published by the Ordnance Survey. Extra features shown for the first time include inter-town distances in miles, expected opening dates of motorways under construction and nearing completion, and inset maps of motorway junctions with limited access.

All the information shown on earlier maps is retained and the new specification is especially designed to make the map easier to read. Generally speaking road revision is up to July 1971 but the opening of the M62 motorway in August has not been allowed to pass without notice.

The retail prices of this map are 60p folded, 55p flat per sheet. The two sheets together in a plastic wallet £1.10. Issued by Ordnance Survey Publication Division, Romsey Road, Maybush, Southampton SO9 4DH.
